“A tasty chicken casserole, using shredded chicken and crumbled tortilla chips. Be the king or queen of your 'ranch' by serving up this treat for dinner!” - by Annette Shaw
Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch baking dish
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place chicken breasts in a pot of boiling water. Cook until meat shreds easily with a fork, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from water, and cool slightly. Remove meat and skin from bones, and shred.
- In a medium bowl, combine the cream of mushroom soup and canned tomatoes and mix together.
- Lightly coat a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. In dish begin layering: 1/3 of the chicken, 1/3 of the soup mixture, then crumble tortilla chips on top. Repeat layers twice, ending with tortilla chips and a sprinkle of cheese on top. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, until bubbly. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
- Top casserole with lettuce, chopped tomato, olives, a couple of dollops of sour cream and a sprinkling of chives. Serve.

The tortillas in the middle were a bit soggy - ne..." See morext time I will not layer as in the recipe, but mix the chicken and soup/tomatoes, top with tortillas, then with cheese."
"I'd never heard of this casserole but thought I would give it a shot. Very yummy but you need to add more crushed chips on top each time you have it for leftovers for extra oomph :o)..." See more"
"I mexicanized this recipe a bit. Instead of cheddar cheese, I used one brick of mild cheddar, one brick of hot pepper cheese, and a bag of kroger shredded pepper jack cheese. Also, instead of the toma..." See moretoes, I used 1/2 jar of mild salsa, and added a couple tablespoons of diced green chilies on top of that. With using the salsa, you do NOT need to use the chicken broth at all. Also, I used a 16 oz package of the corn tortilla's - gave it a great flavor. Family absolutely LOVED it and my son ate the leftovers for breakfast this morning. I like a lot of cheese and so does my family. The recipe's amount would not do for us."
